Some people described it as a mix of Electronic Body Music and Goa Trance. While IC 434 never uses other sound equipment than world's first music workstation, the legendary Korg M1, TEMESTA did not follow this principle but used more modern synths and music software. By the end of 2001, TEMESTA was renamed PANGEA (recently PANGEAN DREAMS) because a resident techno DJ from Café D'Anvers (a well know dance hall in Antwerp) called TEMMESTA (double m!) already was operating in Belgium (and a lot of bands have the name PANGEA). PANGEA DREAMS refers to the name of the supercontinent on earth, some 200 million years ago (which had a bit the shape of a foetus).
Due to geological processes, this continent was divided in the continents as we know them now (Eurasia, Africa, Oceania, North America, South America, Antarctica). Impressed by the PANGEA gig at the first Belgian Independent Music Festival at the end of 2002, Guy Van Mieghem from VOMITO NEGRO asked Geert de Wilde to join his band after the break with Gin Devo. Geert accepted this proposal and Guy immediately started remixing the PANGEA song 'Permafrost'. It's a pity this remix hasn't been released by now.
In the meantime, the PANGEA versions of 'Permafrost' were released on the BREAKDOWN STUDIO label as its first official CD by May 2003. In 2004, a collaboration with Mika Goedrijk from NEBULA-H, led to the song 'Andalusion', which appeared on the limited DVD of their second full length 'H20' and a few samplers. To set things clear: PANGEAN DREAMS is no 'dark electro' at all, but deals with a mix of Goa/Psy Trance, some EBM and industrial sounds, if you want any references. The featured songs are a bit older, all composed between 1999-2004.
